at the state department, that the u.s. ambassador susan rice made on five sunday talk shows here in the united states. they're making this a big issue. does it have political legs as they say? >> well, first of all, i wouldn't be surprised the romney administration -- i mean the romney team make hay out of anything. look, they're looking for an issue. and they're the last people that we should hear from on foreign policy given all of the missteps that mitt romney has made. but look, wolf, beyond the political nature of this whole inquiry, we need to look at the fact that al qaeda leaders posted a video a day before the attack on september 10th which mr. alvarez wa ri wanted to avenge the death of one of his deputies in libya. he called upon libyans to, you know, try to provoke unrest. so look i think one of the things we should do right now is to let congress -- members of congress investigate this. they will investigate this. senator kerry along with senator has sent a letter to the administration answering very important questions that i think the american people will want to know. on the sh
to the united nations susan rice, to resign because of the comments she made on those five sunday talk shows? >> yes, wolf. i believe that this was such a failure of foreign policy message and leadership, such a misstatement of facts at the time and for her to go on all of those shows and in effect the spokesman for the world and be misinforming the american people and our allies and countries around the world, to me somebody has to pay the price for this. we have too much things go wrong and everyone forgets about it the next day. i think we have to send a clear message. on such an issue where an american ambassador was killed where by all the evidence at the time the presumption had to be it was terrorism. i can see why if they wanted to say - it was intentionally or unintly and to show the significance of that, i believe she should gn, yes. >> because there is statemt that the pokesperson, the director of public affairs for the offif director of national intelligence put out today they et w obviously arist -- a action, delibete and organized terrorist assault carried out by extres affili
. it was obvious it was a terrorist attack before susan rice came on this show and others saying oh, no, it was a spontaneous attack about a video. it turns out al-qaeda is capable or al-qaeda affiliates are capable of launching terrorist aattackeds on american embassies and in this case quite a sophisticated one. and attacks on the day after in sudan and tunisia and yemen. we have a war going on and the president doesn't want to discuss that so they tried to pretent this was a spontaneous reaction to a video. >> chris: the timeline set out was that we have this early information and then got information that changed. before susan rice did her famous round of five interviews including "fox news sunday" that first sunday after the attack there was a lot of information or at least allegations including the president of libya and i specifically asked her about that who said this was a preplanned terrorist attack and yet they were insisting. she was insisting no, it was spontaneous. >> it was amazing. i think i was on the panel that week and we were all surprised she didn't leave a little m
, it was a terrorist attack and leon panetta said it was obviously an attack, before susan rice said it was a spontaneous protest about a video and the president has a big investment in the narrative, is usama bin laden dead an al-queda finished and, it turns out al qaeda and affiliates, al-sharia are capable of launching sophisticated terrorist attacks, and, the day and day after in sudan and tunisia and yemen and we have a war on terror going on and the president doesn't want to discuss that and i tried to pretend it was a spontaneous reaction to a video. >> chris: the timeline that the d. n. i., department of national in -- director of national intelligence and panetta said, we have early information and then got information that changed but, before susan rice did the famous round of five interviews including fox news sunday, the first sunday after the attack there was a lot of information released, allegation including the president of libya and i specifically asked about that and i said it was a pre-planned terrorist attack and yet, they were insisting, she was, no, it was spont
about what the u.s. knew. eli, you have been investigating whether susan rice, the u.n. ambassador, was, in addition to receiving the talking points, obviously now everyone knows what those included, right, including that it was not a preplanned attack, also had perhaps been briefed on classified information, which could have included different pieces of information, obviously. what have you found? >> well, the main thing to understand is that the key piece of intelligence that informed the unclassified assessment that this was a spontaneous reaction to a video protest was an intercept between a member of ansar al sharia, and alk al qae in north africa. so that fact that it comes from that conversation, there are lots of reasons as to why the intelligence community would not want that information to be out there. one would compromise sources. the other is this there is a risk if you name groups like that, you could be creating a situation where you're getting false confirmation. someone may have seen a report to that effect, and you think it's an independent verification when it's just
-called talking points you've heard so much about. the talking points that ambassador susan rice used on sunday talk shows that emphasized an initial assessment that the attack began as a spontaneous protest, that it didn't appear to be planned. the white house's national security council spokesman tommy vetoer tells cnn the white house was not involved in writing that memo. elise, i know you have been working fast and furious on this. what was the memo, and what did it say? >> erin, what senior administration officials are telling us, they are speaking from unclassified talking parts provided by the intelligence community based on preliminary intelligence assessments, which were used in the briefing members of congress and speaking about it publicly. now, we know, as you said, there was other information reporting from our sources saying there were indications of possible terror involvement. but national security council spokesman tommy see tore says they didn't have that information and in a statement he says this was an intelligence community assessment based on the analysis of all of the av
rice and others, not just susan rice, who were suggesting that the consulate was as well secured as it could have been. not only the security contractors on the ground to provide security for ambassador and the building itself, but many members of it that made it sound like a big team. it appears that is not case. we learned two other things to present additional problems. we heard about the telephone intercept between al-qaeda linked groups about the attac attack. we know the phone call took place after the attack and the administration had access it to quickly after the attack. so the question is if they knew that, if they had access to that administration to zo quickly after the attack why wasn't it shared with the american people? finally we have the commander, the top general in africa who oversees this, carter hamm, told reporters in july that the united states hasn't done enough to degrade the growing threat from al-qaeda and he was saying it in july. should have been raising alarm bells in washington at the time. >> bret: juan. you know, we here at fox report a lot of thi
, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carney and susan rice to say it's as the result of a ridiculous movie trailer? >> if this wasn't for political reasons it's out of sheer incompetence. and to cover up solyndra and fast and furious, misinformation for political purposes. so the question we have to ask is did they do this out of incompetence or are they liars? >> that's a good question, penny, even just yesterday, james clapper, the director of office of national intelligence came out and said, look, this was sort of our fault. we didn't have all the information right way way. however, witnesses on the ground, they seemed to know it was a terrorist attack and as we now know the white house internally labeled it as a terror attack and they knew there were the al-qaeda off shoots, may have been preparing stuff for september 11th. is this a failure of intelligence? >> again, let us go back. there's a lot of different informati information, and in a responsible manner and go out-- the president, i'll remind everybody, the president the day after in his st

of this in materi terms of the message and the back and forth of susan rice and the president. >> so it's hard right now to kind of move that around a little bit. i think that they could have had huge issues right after the attack, vis-a-vis security, vis-a-vis egypt if mitt romney hadn't gotten in the way. >> right. >> i think that was a big deal he got in the way because that distracted the conversation for at least ten days, him attacking the president. i think now, people have moved back to the economy a little bit. i don't know that people are foe cutting on this as much. >> richard, there's going to be on october 22nd the third debate focused on foreign policy and you can bet the republicans will use this against the president, perhaps we'll have more detailed. how much has he been weakened by the benghazi attack? >> not hugely, to be honest because he struck, as lois said a dignified tone, the president's response was what you expect from the head of state, from national leader. you know, this is a -- clearly an incredibly messy situation, events were messy, libya has no central government th
intelligence. completely different stories. it's contradicting with susan rice, secretary panetta. list goes on and on. >> bob: name me one agent on the record. >> dana: greg, if you are in the intel community. >> greg: i am. >> dana: basically you have been told we're taking the fall for this. behind the scene, you know that there is more to the story. there can be human error. would you put your career on the line if the white house were going to throw you under the bus? >> greg: we were told this is a different administration. smart people. they were the brainiacs. >> dana: opposed to what? >> greg: opposed to bush. obama, you had harvard academics coming in. they could multitask. these guys can't even mono-task. they can't do one thing right. the outrage and the shame for the administration is that the folks requested protection. hillary clinton's pantsuits are more secure than that consulate. this administration put julia before libya. >> bob: no proof -- >> greg: perhaps if they put planned parenthood in benghazi it would have been better protected. >> eric: how much more do you need t
for another briefing. of course, this is all in the face of the likes of susan rice and jay carney who insist on clinging bitterly to their initial lies about what exactly happened there. >> brian: i wonder where this is going to go because there are so many questions still and no one is waiting for the administration anymore. you got a bunch of news outlets who are ticked off about what seem to be lied to. >> steve: something else, we played an hour ago this jaw dropper from one of the president's spokes people, stephanie cutter on the diane reams show yesterday. we're going to have you listen to it, along with everybody else and then commentary. >> that's the other thing that you find most often with women. they're not really concerned about what happened over the last four years. they really want to know what's going to happen in the next four years. >> steve: oh, really? looking forward, women are not concerned with what happened in the last four years with all those jobs lost and the economy in the dumper. they're more concerned about looking forward. you believe that? >> well, you know
to happen with that, with susan rice? do you think she could potentially lose her job or no? >> i don't think she'll lose her job, but i don't think we'll be seeing her much in the upcoming months. >> molly, best and worst? >> i'll give best week to todd akin, the republican senate candidate out in missouri. the deadline passed this week for him to withdraw from the race. he was under heavy, heavy pressure from so many republicans to get out. they say they couldn't possibly win. he stuck it out, he knew they'd come around and they'd give him their money and their support when they didn't have a choice, and sure enough, that's exactly what's happening. you have a lot of republicans magically changing their mind now that they can't get him out of there. and for worst week, i'll have to go with mitt romney. this is the week that we really saw this narrative solidify that he is just, he's down and out. and when i was with him in ohio, i was looking for signs that he's doing something to turn it around. that he knows what he wants to do to get out of it, and i'm just not seeing those signs
